A Screaming Pillar is a sleeping pillar Tiki in Donkey Kong Country Returns. They can be found in the Jungle, Ruins, and Volcano parts of the game. When Donkey Kong or Diddy Kong approach one, it will awake with a loud scream and fall to the floor, attempting to crush the player.
Screaming Pillars can be seen in Mario Kart 7. They are obstacles when gliding through the air in DK Jungle.
